2024 Pony Masters

This was a brand New competition for 2024 where the finals took place at the Mullingar CSI2* International Horse Show, 31 May – 3 June 2024. It was a super opportunity for the qualified riders to compete at the top level alongside our top international athletes. 

Class heights were 128 U10 85cm, 128m, 138 1.10m, 148 1.15m and 148 1.25m. There were 5 qualifers with 5 combinations to qualify in each category with a Maximum of 2 ponies per athletes per class to qualify for the Finals. 

The €10,000 prizefund included rugs, rosettes and sashes at the final which has been kindly supported by Ballynegall Feeds and Showjumping Ireland. 

All qualified combinations competed in both classes in the finals. Day 1 was a speed class which determined the jumping order for Day 2 Grand Prix, i.e. the fastest round in the speed class jumped last in the Grand Prix.

Thank you to the very generous sponsors of the Pony Masters, Ballynegal Feeds, Showjumping Ireland and Equipe Saddles Ireland and to everyone who supported the series.

Well done to all who qualified, and to the prize winners in the finals!
